I'm the Monopoly Man that trolled Google - AMA!
I am Ian Madrigal, the activist behind the Monopoly Man stunts. I am a lawyer, strategist, and creative protestor that trolled Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, for all 3.5 hours of his Congressional hearing on December 11, 2018 (highlight reel here: https://twitter.com/wamandajd/status/1072936421005148162). Beyond making people laugh, the goal of my appearance was to call attention to Google's growing monopoly power and Congress' failure to regulate the tech space or protect user privacy.
I first went viral in October 2017 under my given name (Amanda Werner - I'm trans and use they/them pronouns) when I photobombed the former Equifax CEO at his Congressional hearing. I also trolled Mark Zuckerberg - literally dressed as a Russian troll - and helped organize the viral protest of Trump cabinet secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, at a Mexican restaurant after she first announced the child separation policy.
